Barbora Krejcikova entered 2021 with four Grand Slam titles to her name and has nearly doubled that number through the year’s first two tournaments. After winning the mixed doubles championship at the Australian Open in February, the 25-year-old Czech had a memorable showing at the French Open earlier this month, capturing the doubles trophy and first Grand Slam singles title of her career. Krejcikova will attempt to grab more hardware at 2021 Wimbledon, which gets underway at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on Monday, June 28. The 15th seed, Krejcikova won the doubles crown at Wimbledon in 2018 but will be participating in the singles tournament for the first time this year.
Krejcikova is listed at 33-1, while world No. 1 and top seed Ashleigh Barty is the 6-1 favorite in the latest 2021 Wimbledon odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Seven-time champion Serena Williams, who is the seventh seed, comes in at 7-1 Wimbledon 2021 odds, while two-time winner Petra Kvitova, sixth seed Bianca Andreescu, 2017 titleholder Garbine Muguruza and No. 8 seed Iga Swiatek are 10-1. Before making your women’s 2021 Wimbledon picks or predictions, you need to see what SportsLine’s Gavin Mair has to say.
Mair is the international women’s tennis expert who called unseeded Jelena Ostapenko (80-1) winning the 2017 French Open, Naomi Osaka (32-1) winning the 2018 U.S. Open, Andreescu (20-1) winning the 2019 U.S. Open, plus many other prescient calls.
Prior to the women’s final in last year’s French Open, Mair picked Swiatek to win (-163) and do so in straight sets (+140), and he was right on both counts. Anyone who has followed his tennis picks is way up.
Now, Mair has scrutinized the latest Wimbledon 2021 odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. He’s sharing all his picks and analysis at SportsLine.
Top 2021 Wimbledon women’s predictions
Despite the fact she is the 6-1 favorite, Mair is fading Barty. The 25-year-old Australian, who is seeking her second career Grand Slam singles title, lists grass as her favorite surface on which to play, but she has yet to compete on it this year and has been forced to retire from her last two tournaments due to injuries.
Barty waved the white flag against Cori Gauff in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open in May after straining an arm muscle and was unable to finish her second-round match versus Magda Linette in the French Open earlier this month due to a left hip injury. Considering she’s had fewer than four weeks to recover and get back into ideal shape, it’ll be a tough ask for her to come away with her first Wimbledon crown.
